Not that we know of. Its height doesn't need to be calculated, nor does it need to be animated at the client level. The problem is that sometimes the top of the water can be flat but under the top can be running. That is why mining out the ocean floor with machines is not a good idea.

Anything that can contribute to lag is preferred to be done out of the city - the problem is that the amount of space a player keeps loaded while being in an area is quite large, so that means that while players are in the city, most of the city is kept loaded at the same time. So that's a lot of "stuff" happening in a smallish space. Which all contributes to lag.

Waterfalls and things on their own aren't so much of a problem individually - but it's while there are a lot of machines and animals and water and things all contributing to lag - it gets too much for the server to handle.

The reason we've said no water in quarries is because people typically put water in the ground level of a quarry (so that if the quarry found lava it converts it to obsidian) because it's easier, meaning that it's then pouring down from ground level to bedrock. The more the water flows, the more lag increases. So that's why we've said no water in quarries.

You mean the FTB Mindcrack city. Sanctuary is no more (until we make it available for download).

We will probably get a map of the Mindcrack world up this Sunday. The city map has been updated daily so far.

If you try and download an old version (eg 7) before downloading the recommended version (currently 8.0.1) it downloads the wrong version of minecraft!

Also note that some of the primary download links are out (Mo creatures, custom mob spawner). The mirrors still work

Looks like the server fell over. I can't get to it.

Also my start screen was Nyan Cat, maybe that helped

I'm glad, so far my work pc isn't agreeing with adfly to download the files for the new setup. So haven't been able to connect or try to connect from here yet.

It shows up for me now. I got booted, and then it showed up unavailable, even after I had closed down the launcher completely and re-started.

No one was on at the time but Cheith and I, so I'm going to go ahead and blame Cheith.
